Flagstaff Area ATV Club Meeting

09/07/2013  75 members and land owners present

Meeting was brought to order by President Don Plante.

Our September meeting was held at Cathedral Pines Campground during the Land owner and members picnic.

Presidents Report: Don Plante damp@tds.net

  • A get together for land owners and club members which was located on Site #1 off Eustis Ridge Rd was enjoyed by all.  I want to thank all the members that helped to put this event together by helping to set up and furnish the food, there was plenty to eat.
  • The club members thanked the land owners for allowing trail access to their property.  They were told that without their support there wouldn’t be a trail system like we have.
  • We are very sad to learn about Mike and Julie Ferguson resigning as president and vice president of the Rangeley ATV Club.  Both were very dedicated to the sport.
  • The next meeting will be October 13 at the Community Building at 10 am.  This will be our last meeting of the year and it’s also election of officers.  Anyone interested in running for one of these positions please submit your name and position wanted to Don Plante at 246-5946 or email at damp@tds.net
  • One of the agenda items for the next meeting is buying more hats and shirts.  Color is also on the topics.
  • On the bridge across the North Branch, the only information that we have is that the I-beams are being fabricated and should be ready sometime this month.  More information will be presented as I get it.
  • From our membership person, Elaine Marcoux, we have 144 members.  She has also revised our membership form for next season.
  • The club welcomed game warden Scott Stevens for being present and his comments commending ATVers in our area.
